The workforce for Liverpool vs Leicester
For Liverpool, it is the hecatomb in defence. In addition to the packages of executives van Dijk and Fabinho, the Reds have to deal with the absences of full-backs Alexander-Arnold, injured on the last day, and Robertson, affected with the selection, and central defender Gomez, also injured during the international truce. Separately, rookie Thiago Alcantara and longtime absentee Oxlade-Chamberlain are also stranded in the infirmary, while Henderson also returned injured from the Three Lions rally, and Salah tested positive for covid-19. . On the final day, Klopp changed his system to field an attacking quartet made up of historic Salah, Mané and Firmino and former Wolve Diogo Jota but the absence of Salah should bring him back to his traditional 4-3-3. . The Reds have the third-worst defence in the championship.
For Leicester, the defensive sector is also severely weakened by injuries to executives Ricardo Pereira, Castagne, Soyundu, Evans and Ndidi and potential holder Amartey. There is still the experienced Evans and the former Stéphanois Fofana. The latter impresses across the Channel despite his young age. Jamie Vardy is the current co-top scorer in the championship with 8 goals.
